Description: The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program has produced estimates of the extent and composition of the Nation?s forests for several decades. FIA data have been used with a flexible silvicultural thinning option, a fire hazard model for preharvest and postharvest fire hazard assessment, a harvest economics model, and geospatial data to produce a Web-based tool to assess fuel treatment opportunities at a strategic level. This tool, the Fuel Treatment Evaluator, was used in this study to show how to identify potential fuel treatment hotspots in the Western United States.
